a set of programs for macromolecular phasing. SHELXC is designed to provide a simple and fast way of setting up the files for the programs SHELXD (heavy atom location) and SHELXE (phasing and density modification) for macromolecular phasing by the MAD, SAD, SIR and SIRAS methods. hkl2map provides a simple user interface to SHELX and is installed separately. SHELX was written and is actively maintained by George Sheldrick and his group at the University of Gottingen.
SHELX-2013 is freely available to non-profit labs, but each lab must register with George Sheldrick before we can install the software. To include this software in your installation, please register here then send a copy of your registration confirmation to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
